‘Doping in Sports’ – Teaching Experience

‘Doping in Sports’ – Teaching Experience

On 12th July 2016 a 'Doping in Sports' Conference was held in LJMU's Tom Reilly Building. This was part of a much larger project with LJMU's Endocrinology department, as well as the British Endocrine Society. This was my experience of our English-related part...
